Let me tell you something. When I tell you it you will LISTEN. You will hear these words in your mind as you read them because you KNOW them to be true. Because I speak them from the heart.
I don’t know who you are and therefore it is impossible for me to say anything with bias or judgement, not that I would. I would say the same thing if you were stood right in front of me.
You ARE special. You are different. And that’s not wrong. This is nothing to do with conceit or excuses. People these days say someone is a bit “special” to insult them. This heeds back to an idiotic action or weirdness or being out of place but its ok because patronisingly so that person is special or having a special moment.
It’s because people fear difference. They fear it in others but they also fear it in themselves. There is safety in numbers. In uniformity. Difference is unknown and it stands alone from the other known things. It goes against the instinct for safety. It’s also how every major achievement or progression in human history has occurred.
The difference in you is a great one. Not great as in big. It can be big or small or anything else in between. Great as in meaningful. You don’t have to accomplish anything in your life at all. It’s enough to simply be happy. To be happy there must be acceptance. Not simple indifference. I mean acceptance of non-acceptance. Of the fact that you are a dragon. You are special. You are substantial.
This is very important to understand. I was bullied for my strangeness, for my weirdness. None of that matters, because I understand that I am special and so are you. This is no deluded sense of self-importance or even self-acceptance but self-acknowledgement. Nothing external truly matters. You are you and that is something non-replicable. Nobody in the world is exactly like you are. You are someone amazing. You have something to offer.
You are a dragon.
It is enough to understand this yourself, even if no one else does. Because it’s not about everyone else. Still that’s one more person who understands that in themselves and everyone else. I understand it, you do. That already is not no one.
